A Bold Stroke for a Wife - by Susana Centlivre
Anne Lovely has four guardians, and if Colonel Fainwell wants to marry her, he’ll have to impress them all. Through a series of disguises and deceptions, Fainwell orchestrates a comic whirlwind of identity theft in this satirical send-up of courtship, religion, and politics, penned by an early-18th century female playwright.
